appears that bottom pulley is rotating, but tub not spinning.
could not see any leakage, also, could not pin point where the burning rubber smell is coming from.
nothing is hot or warm after starting the spin cycle, even on the any of the pulleys.
correct, I can move the bottom pulley in both directions, with out much effort. when running looking from the side, it appears that pulley is spinning.
Take a couple of minutes, then notice burning rubber smell
No damage, I did pull the pulley to replace the motor slides.
the shaft has a flat for the pulley, so when I replaced the pulley, I made sure it was aligned and secured tightly.
Is there anything else that gives a burning rubber smell?
Checked belts, motor slide freely when belts are pinched.
Also, belt on pump is adjusted to about 1/2 inch of touching when pinched.
Just also tried turning the center pulley. It turns very easy in both directions at first. Continues to turn freely in counter clockwise direction, but after a couple of rotations is the clockwise direction, it "catches" and is very difficult to turn.
Only see the transmission moving on the hard to move clockwise direction. No movement in counter clockwise direction.
really hard to turn by hand, when started up in spin cycle, motor is driving belt, but the transmission is not turning

Nothing between baskets.
with the inner basket out, I tried turning the transmission manually. It turn very hard in both directions. However, a couple of time in the clockwise rotation, it was like something "let loose" and it moved freely for about a 1/4 turn, then became hard to turn again.
Is the brake sticking, or the transmission bad?
So, looked for any rust - none.
I tried turning the transmission/shaft again, it was really hard to start moving, then it started turning.
Reached under and pulled the belt in both directions, they spun the pulley with no effort. Tried the shaft again, it was really difficult. Tried the belts again, real easy. So I plugged it in, and started the spin without the inner basket. Spins fine with no rubber smell.
Does that mean the brake was stuck? If so, should I replace it?
Also, the cork on the top of the tube seal has lifted at one corner, but appears to be fine. Does that have to be replaced? Is it there for a bearing surface? Does not seem to do anything else.
